Stayed here for 1 night, really enjoyed it.
Located in a suburb of Aalst, not far from highway.
Nice big rooms, good beds and very good breakfast, personal services and treatment of the owner.
But please do not big conference center or wellness & spa facilities, it is called sports & business hotel because most of the guests are sportsmen and business travellers, tourist obviously do not stay here quite often.
Good food in the restaurant, in summer season it might be a bit noisy when your room is located to the restaurant terrasse (the courtyard), but this is minor.
Overall highly recommendable, not far to Ghent.

Room clean and everything works. breakfast OK !
If you have to leave the windows open at night because it's hot (no A/C in the rooms), know that it's a bit noisy until late at night, the hotel restaurant is right outside.
The manager is a nice guy, very helpful.

I travel extensively and this place is a unique gem: superbly equipped for the business traveller but the leisure traveller too, great food - presented beautifully - I want to go back on vacation! This is one of those places where nothing seems too much trouble, its thankfully smoke free and the owner speaks several languages......what more do you want....oh and the beer is great too!!!

Room Tip: upgrade to a business room for more space

Unusual for guets at this hotel, we were not on business or part of a sporting team, but on a holiday to Belgium. We were made most welcome by everyone in the hotel. Its celan, not exepnsive and clsoe to all Belgiums main tiurist locations IGent, Brugge, Antwerp, Brussels etc). We would come again and recommend to anyone looking for an genuine welcome from real Belgians

I totally agree with the other comments.
This really is a very nice place to stay.
The hotel owner is very humoristic and caring for his guests.
He makes you feel welcome.
Although he was very busy with a professional cycling team,
he made some time free to help me out on a software problem I had with my laptop.
The cleanliness of the rooms is outstanding. Also free wireless internet. Unfortunally I was not able to stay for diner. The restaurant had been recommended by several people. Looking forward coming back to "Bovendael" again.
John.
